Available Dogs

Adopting a German Shepherd Dog is a serious commitment of up to 10-15 years. We're looking to find our dogs forever homes so their lives won't be disrupted again.

In general, we don't know the background or medical history of dogs we bring into our program, nor can we guarantee their temperaments, behaviors, or health. We base the information on each dog on observations made while the dog is in a foster home in our program.

Since not all homes are the same, dogs may display different behaviors after being adopted than what we've observed. Similarly, just because a dog has lived with or tested tolerant of cats or small dogs, does NOT mean it will automatically be tolerant of cats or small dogs in a new home. It may take time and supervision while the animals adjust.

All of our dogs are spayed or neutered as required of all California shelters and rescues by the California Food & Agriculture Code Section 30503. They are also current on all vaccines and microchipped.

Not all dogs will be at all adoption events. We don't reserve dogs for adoption by telehone or email. You MUST first submit an adoption application.

    Junior

    Male 6.3 years Level 2.5

    See me at the next Adoption Day!

    Junior!!!    Junior is a male german shepherd dog, 86 lbs and neutered.  His birthday is February 1 and is now 6 years old.  But he still has a lot of playful puppy personality left in him.   Junior is super easy and eager to please.  He doesn’t go far from the pack and wants to be around people as much as possible.  He is excited to see us when we return and is ready for a belly rub or just some petting.  He is potty trained, crate trained and will generally do his business right away when outside.   Junior is not mouthy or food aggressive.  He also will let you grab his collar if you need to and responds well to No.  He knows how to sit, down, wait/stay and follows me inside when it is time to go inside.  He enjoys a good brushing too.  As for walks… Junior will get excited to go when you grab the leash, and he is pretty good on the leash.  When he sees another dog, he does pull but we are working on it.   Junior is spending his time inside with most of the day and is laid back, usually sleeping close by if he isn’t watching the driveway for activity.  He will alert if someone comes near the house or if the neighbors are making a lot of noise in the next yard.  Overall, Junior is a great companion, still has a lot of playful spirit, wants to please his people, and will cuddle up on the couch if you want him to…or if not next to the couch! Due to an unfortunate change in family dynamic, Junior was returned to GSGSR.  Junior was adoted at 8 weeks of age and has been with his adopter for the past 6 years. More
